As far as islanders go I was surprised as were most to Tooles selection for the prospects game, he seemed out of place out there, Larter fit in well and Steele wasn't bad.

Some other 97's from PEI that I liked that I was wondering if could be drafted were Morrisson and Arsenault from Cornwall.

Also really like Mcmanaman out the Islanders as well, sturdy, solid D man.
Saw Jacob play a few times this weekend and he is the real deal if he stays healthy. Fast, shifty, good vision, goes in corners and battles guys much bigger than him and gets points. Great game to watch in the finals.. Two good teams both with good players. Moncton is coming together nicely. After there first game of tourney I didn't think they had a chance. Seem to be very well coached. Top two lines play an awful lot. Valley had a few big defenseman and a couple of good forwards too. Blanchard was good but tried to do a lot on his own. Had points on both goals Valley scored.

Cavan Fitzgerald F 1996, D.J. Collins D 1996 and Bryceson Musgrave D 1997. Those are the players I think should get drafted from the Tradesmen.

I will agree that LeBlanc didn't do anything in that game. However, I wouldn't say that Welsh or Pickard (especially Pickard) did anything either. I actually didn't notice either one of them.

Heard yesterday that Paul got injured in the game, I didn't see the Canadiens last game, anyone know whats up? My source said shoulder but someone else thought knee?

Pretty sure it is either a seperated shoulder or broken collarbone. That came from Pottle

I watched the game there was no standouts if Welch and Picard were I was in the washroom that shift, the two players I really liked was Jacob and Tower the rest a good game a couple of questionable picks on D but I thought it was a good game for the most part

Bower (Saint John), Beaulieu (Miramichi), and Belec (Moncton) should of been there in my mind. All three of them played well in the first two games. The other 97's from New Brunswick that didn't make it didn't impress me. Daley from Fredericton played well in his first game but didn't in the second and Theriault from Miramichi just looks out of place in Miramichi's games now.
I don't think the first two games they played determined for sure the selection process I have tried to find out but from what I am hearing most were already picked and they selected a few to fill in,I agree, Bower and Belec could have been there but as far as Beaulie either I am missing something or he is not even on the radar? Daley is a much better player than Beaulieu, I think Theriault was a question mark as well.

I think he is the best of island 97's but Cornwall has a few 97s that are right up there as well, and I don't know how they stack up compared to people outside the province. How high do you see JM Leblanc and Jacobs going.

And as far as 96's the only one that in my opinion would be on the radar is Mcmanaman from Ch'town

Neither of those players will be drafted very high. As much as Jacob is talented, he is 5'5" and 130lbs....legitemately! Someone could gamble on him as a later pick, although he has to go in the first 8 rounds because he's 15. I'm pretty sure he's as close to being wildcats property as you can get without signing! his father is a scout for the organization.

Leblanc IMO is putting up points, but thats not indicative of his overall game. It will be clearer after xmas (halifax tournament/gatineau tournament) on where he will end up.

PEI - Larter and Steele i would say are the only sure bets at this point to be drafted. It's a very weak year in PEI.

IMO - it's a very weak year in atlantic canada overall, and i mean that in the sense taht there are very few first round calibre players. There are a few, but not many. Noel from NFLD is probably the best from the maritimes at this point. Beyond him, and 2-3 other players, there are a bunch of players that are able to be selected in rounds 4-12. As you all know, each team has different views on all players! that's what makes the draft fun to follow and watch

absolutely! good list that pretty much sums up what's out there. Not many high talents in the bunch. at the monctonian, i was speaking with other scouts and of the 4 i spoke too, 3 of them had deschnenes ranked lower than a first round pick. The other team remained very very high on him.

nice list!

He's on the U16 team, which is the team most other first year midget players play on at Shattuck.
Noel making the prep team was a surprise and very rare.
